    Start by reading the API doc for each class. If you have questions about what the doc says, copy the doc here with your questions.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    I'm sure the docs read differently for each class and describe how the classes are for different usages.
    Have you read the tutorial:
    Lesson: Basic I/O (The Java™ Tutorials > Essential Classes)

    Read the I/O Streams part.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
